Abstract

Nuclear waste management is seen as one of the major issues that nuclear industry has to face in the next decades; design of appropriate materials for radioactive compounds confinement, (very) long term chemical behavior of radionuclides within the geosphere and the biosphere are important issues for the design of sustainable answers. This session will present state-of-the-art, innovative materials development and challenges in this area.
